DESCRIPTION: Stata is a common statistical software package that is used to analyze large datasets. This workshop will introduce participants to a variety of basic Stata operations, such as importing and cleaning data, generating and visualizing descriptive statistics, and running and interpreting common statistical tests such as t-tests and chi-squared tests. This two-hour seminar will be primarily targeted towards audience with a clinical background who have little to no prior experience with data analysis, but who want to get a jumpstart on the Stata learning curve.
